    Default Whats the 1.8vvc like

    Hi all,

    I'm in the market for another Vectra, i had an 03 2.2 SRi before which was nice. I had my heart set on a 1.9cdti 150 Sri but am thinking on the lines of a 1.8vvc SRi. Can anyone tell me what its like and what the tuning options are like.
    Cheers

    Don't think the tuning options are up to much, but I'm happy with mine. Fitted a K&N filter, done the airbox mod...basic stuff. Had a standard 1.8 preface, then got the 1.8vvti SRi Nav which I have now. Quick enough for me and reasonably economical. Average around 27-30mpg around town, and reached up to 47mpg on long runs. Try one and see what you think

    No doubt all the anti-1.9 CDTi posts on here.

    I've got a 1.8 VVTi solid engines power wise they're fine around 140bhp, the cdti 150 are good too. I know people say alot of things have happened to theirs but I know two people with them and have done 60k+ miles with no major problems just the snapped spring. The diesel will hold its value better and better mpg on the longer runs. Saying that I did about 600 miles to a full tank and wasn't really trying to keep the mpg up.

    Working out the cost per mile the 1.8 is looking better value for money. The 1.9cdti is nice to drive and very tuneable. I just fancied picking peoples brains on the 1.8.

    I've had my '06 1.8VVT SRi Nav for about 3 years now and very happy with it. Haven't done many long journeys in it but the ones I have done have been really good. The ride can be a bit hard over bumpy roads but that's to be expected. As mine doesn't come with TC, pulling out of busy junctions on damp/wet roads can be a bit scary as traction can be lost very easily!! HTH

    Default 2.2 Direct

    The 2.2 Direct is a wonderful smooth engine. It sounds good when you work it.

    Very happy with mine , getting about 35mpg mostly around town. A very nice comfortable car to drive.
    140 BPH and pulls well, I never had any flat spots in mine. But have started turning Duel cat-back Exhaust made a fair bit of differance, togeather with the air box mod. K&N air filter gets fitted at the weekend with a re-map still to come.
    I think 160bph is a fair target, on my next rolling road session.
